COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not suited for timid or reserved beer drinkers, Wild Blues defining taste characteristic is its kick of natural blueberry flavor. The Blue Dawg Brewing team carefully selected a blend of hops and barley malt to ensure they complemented and balanced Wild Blues dominant blueberry notes, resulting in a robust and aromatic beer with a refreshing, palate-cleansing finish. Wild Blue is brewed with a blend of German hops from the Hallertau region in Bavaria and classic Aroma hops from the Willamette Valley in the Pacific Northwest. A combination of two- and six-row barley malt also was chosen specifically for this recipe. Beer lovers will appreciate this specialty fruit-infused lagers striking burgundy color, ripe blueberry aroma and its ability to stand up to the strongest of foods.

Im obviously in the minority here, but this is a good beer. Pours purple (!) with a pink/purple head. Wow. Aroma is almost all blueberry, but not overpowering. The palate is a bit weak, but there is some carbonation going on. The flavor, much like the aroma, is blueberry. When I first took a sip, I said, "tastes like a wine." Although still true, its a bit more mellow. Almost like a mix of wine and kool-aid. The high ABV is not evident until the beer warms a bit. Then there is a slight alcohol warming at the end. I like it.

12 oz bottle. Purple with small light purple head. Strong aroma of blueberries. Light body with a medicinal blueberry flavor upfront and a sweet finish. Basically blueberry cough syrup. Gross!

Pours a very blue color. Has a very cranberry or maybe pink/purple colored head. Very strange. Poor retention, okay lacing. It gets points for the odd color and odd head.

Aroma is blueberry pancake syrup. Blueberry sno-cone syrup. Very much blueberry. But hey, there is some light hops in there. Yes, there is. Maybe light earthy or floral. Smells really good.

Taste is blueberry syrup. Light bread crust. Some hop bitterness, or maybe its the alcohol. Very sweet.

Mouthfeel is full bodied. A little slick, pretty wet. No alcohol taste anywhere. Its heavy, but easy to drink.

Overall, I know that Im not supposed to like it.. But I do. Its interesting, its different. Its tasty. Cant say Id drink too many of these at one sitting. I would buy it again. I would probably recommend it. Seriously, its not terrible.

Blueberry, fruity, malty smell, blueberry color, purple white head, very sweet, fruity, bubbly taste, the sweetness in strong, no start to even it out. This tastes like a mainline beer, not much too it but sweetness and fruit. Not complex at all, it is what you get.

By far my favorite beer. Yes, I know it has a fruity taste to it and it has a bluish purple color to it, but it tastes great. Reminds me a bit of some of the Kasteel beers I had in Europe.

Bottle - Pours freakin purple. Purple and flat. Blueberry is dominant and seems more like sparkling grape juice than a beer.

Finally decide to give this a try after seeing on the shelf everywhere. Pours a surprisingly dark cranberry-purple with tons of fizz... Yeah, its more soda fizz than an actual head. Smells like fruit juice or maybe a sweet red wine. Taste is more grape juice than anything resembling beer. Very carbonated. I swear this reminds me of Grape Crush. Its not horrible, I guess. But its not beer either.

Had this from a bottle in Mew Haven with Stefan after picking blueberries. Nose is malty but taste is like a sweet berry soda pop. Surprised by the 8% alcohol because it seems lighter and easy to drink. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark blue, with small pinkish head. Smells fruity like blueberries, taste is not as sweet as a smirnoff or hard lemonade but fruit juice sweet. Has a somewhat artificial taste similar to cold medication. This isnt a beer more of a flavored malt beverage. Not the greatest but I will keep drinking it since it has 8% alochol, I like the buzz!

12 oz bottle. Dark purple-blue body is clear and topped but a pinkish-white head. Fruity smell of berries including blueberries. Flavor: sweet, berry-like flavor with blueberries; overly sweet. Overall: not good but not entirely awful either.
